Montego Bay - Half Moon vs Ritz Carlton
Posted 15 September 2009 - 10:13 PM
I originally thought that I didn't want to get married at the Ritz Carlton because I wanted something more original - and felt like if I was getting married at a Ritz, I might as well get married in Cleveland. BUT, I called the resort just to have something to compare Half Moon to and the planner I spoke with was extremely helpful, responsive, patient -and sent me information right away. While the planner I spoke to at Half Moon was very nice, she has not yet sent me information. Also, I feel like the options at Half Moon are so complicated and overwhelming.
SO - has anyone been here? Does anyone have any advice to offer??
Thanks so much in advance!

Let me know if you have any questions... We didn't really look into Half Moon during the planning process so I can't compare.

as for the beach, i'm sure you've read some of the reviews and they are true. It's very small, rocky but very well kept and private. This wasn't a big deal for us as we only stayed in MB for 4 days and we all went to Negril after.... If you decide to get married at the gazebo, it is very, very private... it's on the east side of the property and hotel guests don't even have a reason to 'wander' around that side... it also has a tiny beach - good enough for pictures, etc.

Things to keep in mind: Montego Bay is about 15-20 minutes away and it costs about 25$ each way to get there. However, there are lots of restaurants that have a shuttle service that will pick you up at the hotel and drop you off in the evening. Just ask the conceirge and they will set it up! The resort seems to shut down kinda early. Seems like most everyone stopped hanging out around 10pm. But that's ok, that is the perfect time to catch a shuttle or a cab and go into town! The food is really good, I didn't have a bad meal the entire time I was there! The drinks are a little pricey for Jamaica (my husband's top shelf cadillack margaritas were $18 each!) but hey, its still the Ritz. I didn't go to the spa, but some of my guests were at the resort for one day of my honeymoon and they said the spa was incredible. Their suites are gorgeous and you will have plenty of room to get dressed with your girls. The champagne they serve is really good so no worries there.
Congratulations and happy planning!
